His Holiness the Dalai Lama at our online 2020 Mind & Life Conversation

Here at Mind & Life, we’re pleased to support organizations like TEDxMarin 2020 whose mission aligns with ours: to bring together science and contemplative wisdom to better understand the mind and create positive change. Many of the themes and topics at the virtual TEDxMarin 2020 Innovator Showcase this year deeply resonate with our work. And we’re always proud to support Rhonda Magee, a Mind & Life Fellow and former Steering Council member!

For over three decades our work has included hosting dialogues with the Dalai Lama and academic events like our upcoming Contemplative Research Conference. Our grantmaking has been instrumental in seeding the field of contemplative science, with over $5.2 million in grants awarded, with $110 million in follow-on funding.

Given your participation in the TEDxMarin 2020 Innovator Showcase, we’re excited to share with you that we are launching our own online monthly conversation series this October, featuring leading researchers, contemplative teachers, and activists from our expanding community.
